LONDON -- Ovum-RHK released its global DSL (Central Office and remote DSLAM ports) and CMTS shipments for the first quarter of 2006 today.

1Q06 highlights:

DSLAM shipments growth over 4Q05 = 4 percent
DSLAM shipments growth over 1Q05 = 33 percent
CMTS shipments growth over 4Q05 = 43 percent
CMTS shipments growth over 1Q05 = 110 percent


Alcatel, which shipped 6 million DSL ports, remains the dominant broadband vendor on a rolling 4-quarter basis, with 31 percent market share, followed by Huawei, Siemens, Lucent, ECI Telecom and ZTE.

In the CMTS market, Cisco had a phenomenal quarter increasing its shipments by 82 percent over 4Q05 and crossing 60 percent market share in 1Q06 shipments for the first time and remains the market leader with 57 percent rolling 4-quarter market share. Arris, Motorola and BigBand followed with 20 percent, 17 percent and 4 percent rolling 4-quarter market share. Arris had a great quarter and saw their shipments grow by 14 percent sequentially matching a decline in Motorola shipments also by 14 percent while BigBand shipments grew by a huge 130 percent. There was growth from all regions particularly EMEA and North America.

"Solid growth in high speed subscribers, IPTV initiatives, and the need to increase bandwidth to end users are contributing to growth in both DSL and CMTS markets especially in North America and EMEA" said Ken Twist, Vice President, Technology Consulting and Broadband Network Strategies groups, at Ovum-RHK. "But pricing pressure is hitting revenues badly. We estimate that DSL revenues are now down to 2003 levels."
